Product Description

Product Description

The humans living on Antilia, a colony in orbit of the planet Jupiter, think of themselves as "Enders" since they're essentially at the end, or furthest reach, or human civilization. After a sudden attack by a fanatical Martian military regime known as the Z.O.E., Ender Leo Stenbuck finds himself with access to the one weapon that can save Antilia: a mechanised attack vehicle called an orbital frame.

In Zone of Enders, you'll command the orbital frame against several robotic opponents. The game features agile 3-D movement, both in the air and on land, and smart camera work that keeps your opponent in view during the most intense, furious battles. The game also comes with a playable demo of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Apart from the likes of the Mechwarrior series, mainly aimed at hard-core gamers, robot fighting sims have not really caught on in the West. Due to an extremely canny piece of marketing on Konami's part Z.O.E. comes packaged with a demo of the sequel to Metal Gear Solid, a serious candidate for best game ever and the game that introduces the delights of Gundam, Patlabor and others to a more general European audience.

Forget the derivative sci-fi back story: Z.O.E. is all about arcade action. Pilot your oversized Mech through dozens of encounters with other automated units all out for your blood. An element of strategy is added by the arenas you fight in, a cross between Judge Dredd's Mega City 1 and Akira 's Neo Tokyo--too much collateral damage to the local citizenry or architecture and it's game over. The graphics are astonishing: laser blasts and explosions fill the screen and no matter how many enemies you face the frame rate zips along. Like a lot of Japanese conversions, the longevity of the game is questionable, but while it lasts you will experience an adrenaline-packed arcade romp

But, in all honesty, a lot (a majority?) of UK gamers will be buying Z.O.E for the one-level demo of MGS2: Sons of Liberty. This is probably the most anticipated console game ever and will be a defining moment for the PS2--if the whole game lives up to the demo's promise then the wait will have been worth it. But if you have got Z.O.E. for the demo, make sure that you play the main game as well otherwise you will be missing out on an exhilarating if short-lived gaming experience. --Michael Bartley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mechs a nice change 18 Nov. 2002
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
The 'Mech' videogame genre is hysterically popular in Japan, but no more than a niche market elsewhere; it can often seem over-complicated and too technical to potential new gamers. However, if you like the idea of giant robots dukeing it out but were intimidated by the complexity of games like Armoured Core, this is the perfect solution. It's smart, stylish and very easy to get into; the controls are simple and fairly intuitive, although rather on the ultra-responsive side - one flick of the analogue stick and you go shooting off into the stratosphere. It's by Hideo 'Metal Gear' Kojima (that probably isn't the right spelling, sorry) so you can expect polished graphics and a 'deep' philosophical storyline told in numerous lengthy cut scenes. As many people have pointed out, the game is quite short and not very difficult to complete, plus there is a fair amount of repetition in the levels... you're just basically fighting enemies and collecting things in the same kinds of environments all the way through. Nevertheless, at its new budget price it's well worth a go, and I for one will be looking out for the apparently much-improved sequel next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars ZOE-Another Konami classic 26 Jun. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Having never played a Mech fighting game i actually like I was worried at what this one might be like. To be fair i probably wouldnt of bought it if it were not for the MGS 2 demo.
Uppers: Incredible graphics Multi-player mode to be unlocked Good story Interesting characters Fast Nice Sound Good battle system
Downers: Short Ends so suddenly Multi-player not brilliant
Overall this is a great game dispite its shortness. Well deserves the ***** it has been awarded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, but far too short 21 Aug. 2001
Format:Video Game
Alright, alright. I admit it. I originally only bought this game for the MGS2 demo (which is GREAT, by the way!) I'm a fan of anime and mecha, but mecha games always struck me as kind of mindless and boring. Not so with ZOE. It's beautiful - probably the most beautiful game on the PS2 at the moment. It's got a decent (if lamentably short) storyline. Leo is irritating, and ADA would be better off if she had just dumped him from the start. But you don't really see much of him, so it doesn't matter. And I guess someone was needed to pilot Jehuty. All in all, I think this would have made a fantastic game, if it hadn't been an obvious set up for a sequel. Rather than standing alone as a single game, you get the feeling that it's just the first chapter in a story. The ending was kind of a let-down, but I have faith that ZOE2 will be longer and more of a stand alone game.

Format:Video Game
The game is set on a colony orbiting around Jupiter and is about a small boy named Leo who stumbles into a revolutionary 'Orbital Frame' and starts to whup anyone that gets in his way. Including a compelling storyline about Leo and the computer of the frame 'ADA', they both learn that not everything can be settled with bloodshed. The controls are easy to pick-up and it really shows the power of the PS2's emotion Engine. There is only ONE thing that i didnt like about this game - the constant battles that you seem to do for nothing. Returning to places for the umpteenth time to find a vaccine or a passcode is slightly annoying. I have completed the game 4 times now and i must say its still a good plast each time I play. When you complete the game for the first time you open up a 'Versus' mode in which you can select any of the orbital frmaes in the game and have a good one-on-one blast with a friend. A must for any Mechwarrior-Gundam-Robot fan. 5 Stars! (Oh and the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo is absolutely brilliant! brilliant graphics, great storyline..the works. You might just buy Z.O.E for the demo!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Zone of the Enders 17 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
For the unitiated HideoKojima is probably the greatest videogame creater of our time. His most famous work is the well-publicised Metal Gear Solid. This title attracted huge critical acclaim and some people still swear by it as the best game ever. With Metal Gear solid 2 brimming over the horizon you might be fooled into thinking that this is something of a time-filler, so we don't get bored waiting for MGS2. However this game is surely one of the best titles on this platform. It is set in the 22nd century and depicts an epic struggle between man and man on the moon. Right at the very start of the game you are plunged right into the action controlling (in a third person view what can only decribed as the ultimate big boy's toy.) A bloody huge, 100 foot Mech. You play the role of Leo, a harmless little boy who watched his best mates die when they were crushed under a giant mech. Anyways, your robot goes by the name of Jehuty, this silky, streamlined robot learns more as you progress through the game. Until at last you know loads of different attacks and combinations. This is extremely rewarding and adds to the fun factor. You, as a player want to stop the seperating of Leo from A.D.A (the computer who helps you learn and control the robot. She has a strange, B.M.W traffic-master style voice which can be qute soothing, however sometimes you just wish she'd shut up and stop telling you:'Enemies approaching our vacinity)this fact drives you on and eventually helps you to complete the game.
In short Z.O.E is a great game and on that shouldn't be missed.unfortunately it's a wee bit short, however, an unlockable two player mode should keep you battling away.
